just completed this task on the GT and thought i would share how simple and easy it is, Did both sides and had no specialist tools or ramps just some axle stands, It pretty obvious how the mechanism operates and how they come of and go back one, so if your faced with this job do not let it put you off its very easy no specialist tools and took me less than 2 hours

It is a really easy job, from memory all you need is a socket set and it was pretty simple to work out. Unfortunately when doing mine, one of the cables had rusted solid so wouldn't come off without a massive fight! :(

How did you do it without ramps?

I did my 156 by parking rear at one side on a kerb where dip in road, no jack, no stands, takes no time at all...

Easiest job on a 156 - though bought wrong side so swapped rubber/foil shield over from old one ;)

axle stands to the rear i then was able ( just) to get to the important bits under the car..................... was bit concerned when it come to conect them to the brake assembly as it dint seem to want to fit but patience and beer as well as the obvious grazed knuckles did it eventually
